Let’s say a drug cartel is convicted and ordered to pay millions of dollars in fines. But as part of the agreement to pay those fines, the drug cartel demands that the government use some of that money to fund special courts to resolve the cases of the street level drug dealers who sold the drugs. Outrageous…right?
Well, that’s exactly what The Banks got away with. They paid a few dollars in fines, but precious little of that money is being used to help the victims of the crime spree. In fact, $29 million goes to, CLEAR THIS BACKLOG!
“There is a tremendous backlog,” Bondi said. “We have to do everything we can to get rid of that backlog, but it has to be under stringent guidelines.”
“Eric Schneiderman can say he’ll sue all day long, but there’s a process that you go through first,” Bondi said. “There are stringent provisions under this settlement process, and we’re doing everything to hold the banks accountable.”
Actually, Florida is doing NOTHING. And that’s a terrifying example of government failure.
